Latest - Magic Talk 03/08/2020

EXCLUSIVE: Former Prime Minister of the United Kingdom (1997 to 2007) Tony Blair, for the first time in over a decade, talks to New Zealand media in the form of our very own Ryan Bridge.

Ryan asks Blair an array of COVID based questions such as when will the world be rid of COIVD-19? to which he replied 

“I think the answer to that question is that for the foreseeable future we won’t I’m afraid”

Tony Blair acknowledges our own government in their efforts to contain and manage the pandemic from within our own walls, and also notes the effort of the team of 5 million.

When asked about Jacinda Ardern Blair says he knows he didn’t know her then but certainly knows who she is now, and maybe they came across each other perhaps once or twice on Downing Street.

There is plenty to unpack in this interview and Ryan asks some great questions to a man who was once a leader of one of the biggest superpowers in the world. 

Take some time to listen to the full interview as it’s a perspective on the world today we don’t often always get an insight to.
